Re: Looking for a temporary gym.

Hi, I do not know any gym in thata rea, but basically it is the same all over Lima, you can pay the full month in advance or you can just pay the visit, the day. I suggest you to go and check the place, most of the gyms here have staff who guide you through a small tour around the gym. Good luck! :!:
